    Miami Heat Salary Concerns...2014?

    Are the Miami Heat ‘going to have to break up their team’ in 2014 due to salary concerns?


    "As a repeat taxpayer, the Heat will be facing the highest incremental tax rates in NBA history. If, for example, the luxury-tax threshold is established at $75 million -- a highly optimistic gain of roughly $5 million from this season -- the Heat could be faced with a tax bill approaching $48 million. In total, they would be paying $141.3 million for 12 players."

    The big 3 all have player options so it's not like the Heat can just break it up without a trade. Don't forget Miller will likely get the amnesty next season which should save Miami a ton of luxury tax

    Lebron is the #1 option so he deserves the max; Wade might need to take a pay cut as he is beginning to age and isn't worth the max at 33 (he's already taken pay cuts); Bosh is the trickier one. I can see Miami giving Bosh the max to keep him and Lebron taking a paycut because he gets most of his money from endorsements anyways.

    Honestly, I don't know whats going to happen, but its clear Lebron is and should be the Miami Heats #1 option to retain. Fill in the rest afterwards. Big factor is also if Riley is still around at that time to be GM (he'll be near 70 years of age and he's sold all his properties in Miami and is building a huge mansion in malibu - retirement is near?). It also depends on how many championships they have at the time. If its only 1, then expect an exodus.

    This article is premature. Lots of time left until then. So many factors. So much time. We should be worried about the fiscal cliff and the Mayan Apocalypse.

    The HEAT will break up big-3:Yahoo

    As a repeat taxpayer, the Heat will be facing the highest incremental tax rates in NBA history. If, for example, the luxury-tax threshold is established at $75 million -- a highly optimistic gain of roughly $5 million from this season -- the Heat could be faced with a tax bill approaching $48 million. In total, they would be paying $141.3 million for 12 players.
    "They're going to have to break up their team,'' predicted a rival general manager who has done the math.
    Unless the NBA's financial circumstances improve over the next couple of years, Arison will be faced with two unhappy choices: The Heat could run a big deficit in 2014-15 to pursue the championship, or he could break up their winning roster by way of trades, amnesty or by not re-signing James, Wade or Bosh, should they exercise their options to become free agents in 2014.
    If league revenues were to jump higher than expected over the next two years, the tax threshold would be raised accordingly and Arison might be able to find a way to escape with his team intact. But the NBA's TV contracts with ESPN/ABC and TNT don't expire until 2016, and league executives don't foresee major financial gains rescuing the NBA before the repeater tax takes effect.

    I think Bosh could be the odd man out. Dont see them moving Wade after all he's done.

    I don't really see the Nuggets doing that.
    Yankees - Jets - Rockets

    Not 1, not 2, not 3.

    Really though, the rumors of Lebron going to NY are going to be huge next year.

    That would be all media hype, I don't see him choosing one off the NY teams, and to make room for him the Knicks and Nets would have to find someone to take Amare or Joe Johnsons contract.

    Besides that I don't think anyone wants to go through a Decision 2.0
